Review: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (HOLY GRAIL)

The other day while I was applying my makeup, I thought to myself, never have I ever finished a bottle of foundation before. This was the first one and I already bought another bottle as back up in my makeup drawer. That’s how much I love it but I’ve never done a review on it! Considering how much Im obsessing over this foundation, I need to share it with you guys coz this stuff is toooooooo good yo. I’m in the shade FIJI by the way.

I’ve mentioned in my previous posts that my skin went from oily to normal/dry recently and this foundation worked so well for my skin when it was oily but also now when it’s dry. To cut the story short, please go to NARS and buy this foundation now. HAHA kidding. Let’s get into the product (extracted from


What it is:An oil-free foundation that delivers full, natural-looking coverage with one drop, for lightweight, 16-hour wear.

What it does:Achieve full-coverage, lightweight foundation that leaves a natural finish. Highly pigmented and perfectly balanced, this breakthrough, full-coverage formula builds and blends effortlessly. Its Even Tone Technology instantly neutralizes redness and dullness, while it works to reduce discoloration for more even, uniform skin. Perfect for all skin types, it features Weightless Long-wear Technology, an exclusive blend from NARS with flexible polymers and treated pigments that move with the skin while providing 16 hours of staying power.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:– Parabens


  • Packaging, Consistency & Scent

It comes in a sleek glass bottle which is slimmer and taller than the previous NARS foundations and with a PUMP. Thank goodness coz I have a tendency to waste foundations without pumps when I pour them out.


The consistency of this is very watery and thin but it doesnt dry on the face too fast so you can actually take your time working with it in sections. My fav part is that this baby has no offensive scent to it.

  • Overall thoughts

I’ve used this foundation for close to half a year now on my oily skin, dry skin, with primer, without primer, with and without setting spray you name it and every single time I put this on my face, I am always happy from the moment I put this on till the end of the day.

First, the shade FIJI is perfect for my skin tone and I love that it has a yellow undertone. I also love the fact that it’s so easy to work with. I can blend this into my skin with either a brush or a Beauty Blender and it will go on so beautifully effortlessly without sinking into my pores or any fine lines.

IMG_2871-horzThe consistency is runny but it gives FULL coverage with just 2 small pumps coz with this, you only wanna apply a little bit or else cake face will happen. I cant say that it feels like I have no makeup on using this because I always use powder on top of it but it does feel really light like it doesnt suffocate your face. It gives a nice semi matte finish and it doesnt cling onto my dry patches, as long as you moisturize well before use.

I had this foundation on my face for 12 hours the other day and it did not budge I kid you not but it is formulated to be a long wearing foundation so yeap 12 hours and I did not touch up at all. I mean I love putting on makeup but I get lazy to touch it up throughout the day so I work on finding products that will make my makeup last with no touch ups and this was the perfect base. 

So if you cant already tell, I am absolutely obsessed with NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. I have no con for it whatsoever and I will keep using it coz I have no reason not to, its perfect. I do try out other foundations in between but this is the one that I always go back to because I know for a fact that it will hold up and will not let me down ever! Also, it photographs beautifully. This is my HOLY GRAIL guys!

IMG_2821With this foundation, people either really love it or hate it but this review is only based on my personal experience and I thought I’d share 🙂 You can always go to NARS and ask them to let you try this foundation first if you’re thinking of buying because its RM180 a bottle and that’s really expensive! But it’s worth it. You can get this foundation at all NARS boutiques.

Thanks for reading guys! xx
